The Broncos took Lock with a mid first-round pick in this year's draft. Denver hopes to have finally found their franchise quarterback. Lock has a good mentor to learn from his rookie year, likely playing behind Joe Flacco. Lock has a huge arm and can make all the throws in the pro game. He also is a little cocky, having a lot of confidence at the position, which isn't a bad thing. He will miss some easy throws and can struggle with mechanics at times because of his great arm, trusting his arm strength more so than having proper technique.
FANTASY OUTLOOK: Lock has big-game potential, so he has some fantasy value if starting. He might not get a whole lot of chances his rookie year, though, with Flacco around.

Denver Broncos head coach Vic Fangio said it's a possibility that rookie quarterback Drew Lock (thumb) begins the season on Injured Reserve. Lock suffered a severely sprained right thumb during a sack early in the third quarter of the preseason game on Monday against the 49ers. He'll be limited to conditioning work the remainder of the preseason. With Lock banged up, Kevin Hogan and Brett Rypien will battle for the backup job behind Joe Flacco to start the year. Lock could be forced to miss half of his rookie season, but he's still a solid player to own in dynasty/keeper leagues.
Denver Broncos rookie quarterback Drew Lock (hand) is likely done for the rest of the preseason after an MRI on his right hand showed a bad sprain, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The second-round selection suffered the injury in the preseason game Monday night against the 49ers while being sacked. The good news is that his injury won't require surgery, but he might not be ready for the regular season. In three preseason games, the rookie had gone 31-for-51 (60.8 percent) for 254 yards, a touchdown and interception. Lock could start games this year if Joe Flacco struggles, but he's mainly a dynasty league target in fantasy leagues. Kevin Hogan and Brett Rypien will back up Flacco with Lock injured.
Denver Broncos rookie quarterback Drew Lock (hand) and rookie tight end Noah Fant (foot) were both injured in Monday's preseason game against the 49ers and are questionable to return. Lock went 7-for-12 for 40 yards before departing, while Fant caught two passes for seven yards on three targets. Both players will be instrumental to Denver's future, but it remains to be seen how much they'll play in their rookie seasons. Fant has the better chance to be fantasy relevant as Denver attempts to finally get some production from the tight end position. Lock could see some starts at some point if Joe Flacco falters. Both players are most attractive in dynasty/keeper formats in 2019. Stay tuned for more information on their respective injuries.
Denver Broncos Quarterback Drew Lock was given the reigns to the team on Thursday night against the Seattle Seahawks, handling the Quarterback duties after the first two possessions. The Missouri product showed why he was taken in the second round with a few nice plays throughout the game, but it is also clear why he is third on the depth chart. Mental and physical errors were present in Lock's performance, leaving his only fantasy value in deep keeper leagues, as Lock's ceiling is probably reaching QB2 status with the Broncos this season.
Denver Broncos quarterback Drew Lock didn't look good during the 14-10 victory over the Falcons on Thursday. The 22-year-old out of Missouri didn't do much to convince his coaching staff that he was a real candidate to start Week 1 against Oakland, finishing the night by going 7-for-11 for just 34 yards. After being outshined by fellow rookie quarterback Brett Rypien, who managed to throw a touchdown late in the fourth, it is more apparent that Lock is still a work in progress. He has little-to-no fantasy value at the moment outside of dynasty formats as long as he remains relegated to running the scout team offense at training camp and sitting third on the team's depth chart.
Denver Broncos quarterback Drew Lock, a second-round pick, remains the only unsigned rookie on the team. Offensive guard Drew Risner, who was selected a pick before Lock at 41 overall, signed a deal worth $7.14 million on Tuesday. According to multiple sources, Lock's representatives are seeking a "quarterback premium." There is hope that he'll sign before the team's first meeting on Wednesday and first practice on Thursday, but there's also the chance that Lock isn't present for the start of training camp. The Broncos made assurances to Risner that Lock won't receive a richer contract. Lock has long-term upside in dynasty/keeper leagues, but he won't have much redraft value as the expected backup to veteran Joe Flacco to begin the season.
